Tableau
Tableau Software, a privately held company in Seattle, Washington (US), builds software that delivers fast analytics and rapid-fire business intelligence to everyday business people. Tableau's products include Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server, Tableau Digital, and the free Tableau Public. People can install Tableau and connect to nearly any data source in minutes, whether it’s an enterprise-wide data warehouse or local files. Once connected, they can analyze data through an easy drag-and-drop interface. Tableau has already attracted over 65,000 licensed users, from one-person businesses to the world’s largest organizations. Tableau began as an extensive R&D project inside Stanford University’s prestigious Department of Computer Science. Professor Pat Hanrahan and Chris Stolte, a Ph.D. student at the time, together combined a structured query language for databases with the communication power of visual graphics, inventing a new database visualization language called VizQL™ (Visual Query Language). Under the technical leadership of Hanrahan and Stolte and the business acumen of CEO Christian Chabot, the VizQL foundation produces a fundamentally new way of interacting with the same relational databases that are the backbone of the global database and business intelligence markets.

Comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of Business Intelligence Solutions
Source: Birst For many companies, traditional business intelligence (BI) software is costly and resource-intensive. So are open source alternatives that require significant configuration and integration. In contrast, software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions can reduce the cost of a BI deployment by providing automation and pre-integration. Compare total cost of ownership (TCO) for traditional, open source, and SaaS BI solutions. Read More...
